Debunking ‘The Shuk-den Affair: Origins of a Controversy’

The Dalai Lama and his anti-Shugden associates have lost yet more ground to stand on in the battle for the truth about Dorje Shugden. The scholar, Trinley Kalsang, has launched a new site which debunks Dorje Shugden myths created by the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan Government in Exile.
